Home > Our Investment Funds > Deep Value Investment Fund

A small cap fund that looks for unloved companies priced at a discount to their liquid assets. Largely UK weighted, the fund has a bias to the service sectors.

The objective is long-term capital growth; income distributions (if any) are likely to be low.

The Deep Value investment Fund invests in companies that are trading at a discount to their net asset value (nav).

This particular investment approach is based on the philosophy created by Benjamin Graham, the dean of value investing. His most famous book the “The Intelligent Investor” is the basis on which The Deep Value Investment Fund approaches potential investments.

Companies that the fund invests in have strong balance sheets, creating a margin of safety, but tend to suffer from low (temporarily) profitability due to issues relating to e.g. specific business issues, legal, technological and or industry cyclicality.

Due to these factors these solid but cheap companies can be bought at attractive prices and with the benefit of time should be expected to return to previous levels of profitability and hence higher share prices. Buying companies at these low valuations will also often make them potential takeover targets.

We are doing our best to get the Church House fund range onto as many as platforms as possible, as quickly as possible; however, it is often the case that a platform will want to see demand for a fund before they will list it so we would be very grateful if you could get in touch with your usual contact at the platform(s) that you use to ask them to include the Church House funds.

So that we can push things along, it would help if you could copy in s.liddle@church-house.co.uk when emailing a request to the platforms.  

All applications are made on the basis of the Prospectus, Key Investor Information Document, most recent annual or semi-annual report and the application form. Please read these carefully prior to investing. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment please consult an authorised financial adviser.
